Apr 4th 2012 2:52PM I love your storyline, but I hope like hell it doesn't happen that way. I'd hate for Blizzard to destroy their single credible and capable female faction ruler like that. They destroyed Tyrande in the last expansion, they're going to destroy Jaina soon, and Moira has always been a sideshow with no true agency.
Apr 4th 2012 2:47PM I suppose I made no secret of wanting part of the final fight with Deathwing to be a fight inside Deathwing's mind, where we confront the forces of the Old Gods who drove him mad. The same concept could be extrapolated for an ultimate Lich King fight in your scenario.
Bolvar lets it be known, somehow, that he's losing the battle against the Hive Mind. We the adventurers are mentally projected into the Lich King's mind by the combined forces of various lore figures. While there we fight bits of the souls of Ner'zhul, Frostmourne, Kel'thuzad, Arthas, and perhaps even our younger selves.
Blizzard could re-use old art assets but make new, twisted versions of them, since we're seeing them through the lens of madness.
Apr 4th 2012 10:22AM I'm sniffling now. Thanks for the emotional sneak attack.
Stories like that clear your emotional arteries, if you let them, and encourage you to focus on what's really important. Excuse me, I must go call my husband now.
Apr 4th 2012 8:13AM My favorite pet is usually whatever is newest, unless I just bought it off the auction house (not much fun). I kept lil' Tarecgosa out for the longest time, though, because I was so proud of our raid group for getting the legendary. Wishing there were more achievement pets.
My daughter goes nowhere without the Creepy Crate. Quite disconcerting when we're playing together.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but have we seen a female Tauren raid boss yet, anywhere? I had hopes with Hagara, but she's an orc of some sort, I think.
Apr 3rd 2012 11:03AM A non-panda question.
I'm trying to convince my raid group to go back and finish the tier 11 stuff we never got around to, including Sinestra. To do that, we've got to get past H Cho'gall first, and most of us have forgotten how to Cho'gall. And I'm not sure what the best guides for that and the Sinestra fight would be. Do you have any preferred resources and strats for those fights, especially now that we massively overgear them?
Apr 3rd 2012 8:37AM I don't like PVP much at all. I just don't have the reflexes to handle surprises any more. I'm much happier with a PVE dance that I can learn and excel at.
I do like Alterac Valley, because it's a large enough group that my lack of one-on-one skill isn't glaringly apparent and I can think strategically instead of depending on twitch. And it has significant PVE portions, so that's a comfort.
Apr 2nd 2012 2:13PM He's probably a placeholder for beta; I wouldn't count on him being around forever.
Apr 2nd 2012 1:31PM Tell your husband he's got to grind rep with the spousal faction. Otherwise it'll go from Neutral to Hostile to Hated and he'll get attacked every time you come into range. It's not hard. Do some dailies, finish up some quests. There's no tabard, but there are plenty of crafting turn-ins and engineering is actually useful for once.
If he gets to Honored or above it'll provide some nice food buffs and the possibility of some unique items.
Apr 2nd 2012 12:54PM Just you wait. Someday, Blizz will take up my suggestion of a BoE Portable Anvil for engineers, and every non-engineer will go broke buying them to drop on worgen heads while shouting "Meep meep!"
